RE: NPR, Godel, Semantic Web

One man's garbage is another man's gold. 
Dem's da rulz.

We will have a big struggle over the rights 
to the knowledge bases.  We started HumanML 
and inside three months, I can count at least 
a dozen efforts in the same domains.  That 
is normal.  It also says, give it a year or so and 
then some standards org has a good case to 
create a standard.  Then the authority is 
clear even if the membership isn't.  Then 
we will complain about burglary and closed 
membership and there will be those claiming 
we can't do this, and  and  and...

.... garbage becomes gold.  Thousands of 
years of alchemical ambition comes down 
to email.  Garbage In Gold Out. ;-)

In my experience it trips on:


no mathematics needed to understand that.
